Top 37 Music Albums of 1993 by Larcx13 (2022)

Robert Christgau ratings: http://robertchristgau.com/xg/bk-cg90/grades-90s.php

An A+ is a record of sustained beauty, power, insight, groove, and/or googlefritz that has invited and repaid repeated listenings in the daily life of someone with 500 other CDs to get to. An organically conceived masterpiece that repays prolonged listening with new excitement and insight. It is unlikely to be marred by more than one merely ordinary cut.

An A is a record that rarely flags for more than two or three tracks. Not every listener will feel what it's trying to do, but anyone with ears will agree that it's doing it. A great record both of whose sides offer enduring pleasure and surprise. You should own it.

An A- is the kind of garden-variety good record that is the great luxury of musical micromarketing and overproduction. Anyone open to its aesthetic will enjoy more than half its tracks. A very good record. If one of its sides doesn't provide intense and consistent satisfaction, then both include several cuts that do.

A B+ is remarkable one way or another, yet also flirts with the humdrum or the half-assed. A good record, at least one of whose sides can be played with lasting interest and the other of which includes at least one enjoyable cut.

A B is an admirable effort that aficionados of the style or artist will probably find quite listenable.

A *** Honorable Mention is an enjoyable effort consumers attuned to its overriding aesthetic or individual vision may well treasure.

A ** Honorable Mention is a likable effort consumers attuned to its overriding aesthetic or individual vision may well enjoy.

A * Honorable Mention is a worthy effort consumers attuned to its overriding aesthetic or individual vision may well like.

A B- is a competent or mildly interesting record that will usually feature at least three worthwhile cuts.

A C+ is a not disreputable performance, most likely a failed experiment or a pleasant piece of hackwork.

A C is a record of clear professionalism or barely discernible inspiration, but not both.

A C- is a regrettably successful exploitation or a basically honest but quite incompetent stab at something more.

A Neither (+/-) may impress once or twice with consistent craft or an arresting track or two. Then it won't.

A Choice Cut (✂️) is a good song on an album that isn't worth your time or money--sometimes a Neither, more often a Dud. Some (✂️)s are arbitrarily personal, others inescapably social. Sometimes one is so wondrous you'll be tempted to spring for the high-priced package anyway. More often it would fit sweetly onto a compilation you can only pray will include it.

A Dud (💣) is a bad record whose details rarely merit further thought. At the upper level it may merely be overrated, disappointing, or dull. Down below it may be contemptible.

A Turkey ({🦃}) is a bad record of some general import, although no artist should be saddled with more than two in a decade. What distinguishes a {🦃} from a Dud is that it's reviewed and graded.
